    One thought on “The Animal Liberation Front: A Political and Philosophical Analysis”

    1. I had never read anything about ALF before but decided to purchase this book to take a look into the liberation front. I was intrigued by what I read and now have a deeper understanding and respect for ALF. Although I would never be able to damage others property, I have a respect for these individuals and their devotion to the animals to do what it takes.
